The Glory Be

Detail of Painting of the Blessed Trinity

 
Glory be to the Father,
and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning,
is now, and ever shall be,
world without end.
Amen.
 
 
                         The Glory Be, or Gloria Patri in Latin, is a doxology or a short verse praising
                      God.  It was promoted as a defense against the Arian heresy in the 4th century, but became more
                      widely used throughout the Church in the 7th century. This doxology appears in the Liturgy of the
                      Hours and is often used in extra-liturgical services such as the recitation of the Rosary.
